Annual Hydrant and Sewer Flushing


The Municipality of Meaford, in coordination with Onsite Sewer Services of Hampton On., will be conducting flushing and video inspections of sanitary sewers.

Flushing and video inspections will be completed between 07:00 and 18:00.  During this time period affected residents may notice gurgling noises or water bubbling in toilets. This is more likely to happen in older homes with poor venting of the plumbing or homes with toilets on the basement level.  It is suggested that the toilet seat of all toilets be left closed during the flushing process.

A Vactor truck (noisy during flushing and debris removal) will be used for flushing and cleaning purposes and a van for the CCTV inspections. The duration at each man hole may vary but should normally be less than 15 minutes.

Onsite Sewer Services are completing both Flushing and CCTV inspections today on the following streets,  Graham St.,  Aiken St. from Graham St. to Lakeside,  McKibbon Dr.,  St. Vincent St. / Grey Rd. #7 from the SVE School to Montgomery St., Montgomery St. and on Cook St. between Trowbridge St. and Nelson St.

The camera truck will be completing CCTV inspections on areas flushed on before moving to the above areas.

Fire Hydrants

The Municipality of Meaford is conducting their 2017 annual hydrant flushing. Flushing will take place between 07:30-16:00 Monday-Friday. During this time you may notice slight discolouration or a cloudy appearance of your water, and possibly reduced pressure. Should you notice discolouration it is recommended that you run your cold water through your bathtub tap or another tap that does not have a screen until it clears up. You may also notice puddles, as the water could be flushed onto the roads. Should you have any concerns please contact the Municipal Office.

If residents have any questions or concerns with the Hydrant or sanitary sewer flushing or video inspection operations, please call us at 519-538-1060.

    We have recently had some instance of garbage bag tags being ripped in half, and both halves being placed on two separate garbage bags. Garbage will only be collected if a complete bag tag is present on all waste bags, and by-law enforcement will be contacted if necessary.
